Tacitus, Annals 1.3

Affairs at home were peaceful, the titles of the magistrates were the same. Younger men were born after the battle of Actium, and even many of the older men were born during the civil wars. How many were left who had seen a republic?


domi res tranquillae, eadem magistratuum vocabula; iuniores post Actiacam victoriam, etiam senes plerique inter bella civium nati: quotus quisque reliquus qui rem publicam vidisset?
